Organized Crime Lawyer in Fort Worth
Fort Worth Defense Against Racketeering
Participating in organized criminal activity is taken very seriously and is severely prosecuted within the state of Texas. Texas is unique in that the crime is referred to as engaging in "organized crime" (Penal Code § 71.01) rather than Racketeering or Racketeer-Influenced and Corrupt Organization (RICO).
This is a more severe crime than if the offense had been committed by an individual rather than by a group. When faced with these charges, you will want to ensure that you have taken every necessary effort to protect your rights. When you choose Attorney Samuel R. Terry to defend your case, you will benefit from a dedicated and caring Fort Worth criminal defense attorney with exceptional experience.
What is needed to be convicted?
Engaging in organized criminal activity involves conspiracy to commit various offenses, including, but not limited to the following:
- Murder, arson, burglary, kidnapping, etc.
- Class A misdemeanor gambling offense
- Unlawful offense involving firearms or prohibited weapons
- Any offense classified as a felony under Chapter 32
You do not need to be a member of a gang to be charged with the offense of engaging in an organized crime in Texas. All that needs to occur for this charge is evidence that more than two people collaborated to carry out a criminal action.
